Solar Street Lighting

Solar street lights are raised light sources which are powered by photovoltaic panels generally mounted on the lighting structure. The photovoltaic panels charge a rechargeable battery, which powers a LED lamp during the night. Most solar panels turn on and turn off automatically by sensing outdoor light using a light source. Solar streetlights are designed to work throughout the night. Many can stay lit for more than one night if the sun is not available for a couple of days. The system is an ideal application for illumination of streets, cross roads, forest and village lighting that are not connected with power grid. It is provided with battery storage backup sufficient to operate the light for 10-11 hours daily. Unlike old lamps that produce a yellow-orange light, Solar street light using LED technology generate a very powerful and targeted crisp white light of excellent quality, which significantly improves color rendition and night visibility.
